‘Thank you’ for generous donation to St. Anne’s

An open letter to the committee and participants of the annual Hannah Kane Charity Golf Tournament at the Haven in Boylston: We are most grateful for your generous donation from your fantastic golf event for charity. It’s amazing to see the support shown for this annual event and watching it grow bigger yearly.

Thank you Sen. Moore

Shrewsbury resident Ruth Cohen wrote this thank you to State. Sen. Michael Moore (D-Millbury) after he hosted an ice cream social at the Shrewsbury Senior Center Aug. 28.

State Sen. Eldridge cares more about the safety of illegal immigrants than Mass. citizens

The Mass SJC, in one of its liberal modes, ruled last month to place the residents of this Commonwealth at risk by releasing illegal aliens subject to federal detainer requests. The SJC decided for the rest of us, that illegal immigrants charged or even convicted elsewhere of even the most serious or violent crimes could not be held by Massachusetts law enforcement one minute for ICE to act on the detainer.

President should not have pardoned Arpaio

With so much tragedy and horror in the world that is out of our control, it is appalling to me that the president added to the pain and mistreatment suffered by the victims of former Sheriff Arpaio by pardoning him with the simple and erroneous statement that Arpaio was convicted for “doing his job.”

Thank you for successful swap event

"Swapclothes123" in Shrewsbury is growing in families and sizes. This event would not be possible without everyone coming to swap. Thank you. The kids had a blast and kept busy coloring and building LEGO castles.

Thank you for all involved with Kane golf event

On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff and clients of Shrewsbury Youth and Family Services, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you to State Representative Hannah Kane, Tournament Chair Beth Casavant, community volunteers, The Haven Country Club, and all the generous sponsors and donors for all their hard work in organizing the Hannah Kane 3rd Annual Charity Classic, that was held on August 21.

It will be ‘Grande’

Westborough - The culmination of Westborough’s 300th anniversary year will be a “Grande Parade” on Sunday, Sept. 10 beginning at 1 p.m. Grand marshals for the much anticipated event will be two very familiar and well-respected women– Lydia Goldblatt and Kristine Allen. Both have served on numerous town boards, including years on the Board of Selectmen, and both have given much of their time over the years volunteering with nonprofit organizations in the town.

Drive sober or get pulled over

Grafton – With the approval by the state’s voters last November to legalize recreational marijuana, many local police departments have shared concerns regarding a potential increase in impaired drivers. In Grafton, thanks to a grant from the Highway Safety Division of the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, the police department will soon be able to increase the number of patrols on the streets.

Making a run for it?

Nation - Only six months into the Trump presidency and the political pundits are already speculating about who will – and will not – run for the Oval Office in 2020. The president himself appears to be campaigning already for a second term while both Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Vice President Mike Pence have strongly denied their intentions to run. However, if we have learned anything at all about the game of politics, we should not believe everything we hear. Only time will tell who will be throwing their hat into the race.

Don’t let the door hit you…

National - Regardless of your political leanings, there’s no denying that things are changing rapidly at the White House. With the recent addition of...
